Me and the guy I've been talking to and have really liked for 3 years just decided to stop talking. We were arguing over the phone and ended it as I hung up on him. I'm not that upset now, but I know I will be once I have serious time for myself... What's the best thing to do when dealing with a "breakup?"

Hi juliadiana, I'm really sorry to hear this -- I responded to your other post before I saw this one.

We have a really really great article Heather wrote about break-ups, I found it helpful for dealing with one of my own.

Getting Through a Breakup Without Actually Breaking

The best thing I always find when getting through a break up or some other kind of loss, is pretty cliche but it's cliche for a reason -- keep yourself busy. Hang out with friends you may have neglected, go and do fun things just for yourself, maybe look for classes or activity groups in a hobby you'd really like to get more into. If you keep yourself busy it helps you spend less time thinking about all the "what ifs" of the relationship. Obviously, you also need time to just let yourself be sad and mourn the loss of the relationship, but it's also important to keep yourself from getting lost in the sadness.
